Aloha, My name is Bett Jane Evans. I was born B.J. Wasley. My Mother Joanne Wasley was born Joanne McCallum, daughter of Revell Mc Callum. Revell was my grandfather,of McCallum Hosiery.I found it interesting to find an ad from his business in your "All American Ads of the 20s". Are there any more?

Hi Bett. Sure, just do a search for "McCallum" or "Woodbury" on the top bar and you'll see the other examples of this artist's work for that brand of hosiery. Thanks for commenting!

To anonymous!!! I have one pair of the set I believe McCallum stockings made for a Vanderbilt at the time of the worlds fair. I'm looking for research info. They are stamped by the machine that stamped the McCallum logo with the monogram. I found the article stating Elias Claydon who actually made them had a special set ordered with her initials during the time of the worlds fair, I purchased from an estate which owned a vintage clothing museum. If you have any advice on how to research, please let me know!!!!! They are amazingly extraordinarily gorgeous even for McCallum with embroidered daffodils up the legs.
